ACC 5331 Data Analytics in Accounting

Prerequisite: ACC 3305 (with grade of C or above) This course is intended to provide students with an understanding of data analytic thinking and terminology as well as hands-on experience with data analytics techniques and processes as utilized in the accounting profession. The data analytics mindset is the ability to ask the right questions; to extract, transform and load relevant data; to apply appropriate data analytics techniques; and to then interpret and share results with stakeholders. Students should leave this course with the skills necessary to translate accounting and business problems into actionable proposals that they can competently present to managers and stakeholders. While there will be some use of tools in this course, the focus of this class is on concepts, not algorithms or statistical math.
